To celebrate today's launch of CBLDF Defender, we've uploaded a bonus episode of the CBLDF Podcast! In this episode, we speak to author and CBLDF Advisory Board Co-Chair (as well as CBLDF Board of Directors Alumnus) Neil Gaiman!

Neil is one of the most popular authors working today, a ground-breaking graphic novelist, a humanitarian deeply involved in multiple charitable projects, and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Bram Stoker awards, as well as the Newbery and Carnegie medals. He has been a tireless voice for free expression over the years, and is one of the most passionate voices in the literary world when it comes to fighting censorship.

We discuss: Charlie Hebdo, British censorship, libraries, icky speech, and much more!

In support of our ongoing education work, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund is now part of the audio-sphere! A mix of interviews, discussions about current Free Speech events, convention panels recordings, and archival materials, the CBLDF Podcast will be a monthly event, from our keyboards to your ears. The CBLDF podcast is made possible in part by a donation from The Gaiman Foundation and member support.

You can listen to the podcast here.
